Home CCTV captures men brazenly testing if cars are locked

Video footage from Pelsall resident originally posted on Facebook.

Following on from last weekend’s warning to people with work vans – that there’s currently a rash of vehicle break-ins in our area – the importance of the message is illustrated in a very grim manner by the above CCTV footage, supplied by a Pelsall Resident, of what appear to be a gang of three men trying doorhandles of parked vehicles in the small hours of the morning.

The footage shows what one can only assume are ne’er do wells brazenly checking if cars are locked in a systematic and organised fashion at 3:24am on a quiet, residential street on Sunday morning, 13th May 2018.

The footage has been reported to police, but the resident who supplied the video does not feel it’s being taken seriously enough by West Midlands’ finest. Note that the man furthest away appears to be caring a cased snooker cue stolen from a vehicle in Pelsall earlier in the evening.

The smoothness with which they do this is quite shocking. Still taken from resident-supplied video.

The people doing this are more than likely doing it to raise cash from the proceeds of selling what they steal. If you know who these characters might be, or are offered what you think is stolen gear, please grub the suspects into the police.

Bear in mind that the more complaints about this type of behaviour the police get, the more likely they are o act, so report every crime or suspicious incident please, no matter how trivial they may seem.

Anyone with information is urged to contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
